Red5 Pro HTML5 Streaming Testbed

This repository contains a simple project with a number of examples that can be used for testing and reference for the Red5 Pro HTML SDK.

These examples are also shipped with the Red5 Pro Server and can be found in the webapp webrtcexamples.

Requirements

You will need a functional, running Red5 Pro server web- (or locally-) accessible for the client browser (mobile & desktop) to connect to.

For more information visit Red5Pro.com.

Browser Compability

While the Red5 Pro HTML SDK aims to utilize WebRTC for its streaming solution (both publishing and subscribing), the SDK does support fallback support for non-supporting browsers in both contexts. The default failover order for both contexts, which can be redfined by developers, is:

Publisher

  1. WebRTC
  2. Flash

Subscriber

  1. WebRTC
  2. Flash
  3. HLS

More information about browser compability can be viewed at the WebRTC Peer Connnection information on caniuse.com.

Setup

You will need to modify the Host field from the Settings page to point to your server instance's IP address. If you do not, the examples will not function when you build. If you are running the server locally, then your machine and mobile device need to be on the same WiFi network.

Note on TLS and CORS

It is important to note that some of these examples - specifically those that involve publishing using WebRTC - require being run on TLS and, thusly, served over HTTPS. If running the examples on localhost you should not see an issues, but if your server is deployed remotely you will need to be sure that these examples are served over HTTPS and the proper Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) settings are defined for the server.

Instructions

To define the server instance's IP address, open the testbed webapp in a browser and navigate to the Settings page if not presented upon launch. To access the Settings back, select the Home item from the examples list located at the top.

To define the Host with the server instance's IP, click the Host field f the form and enter in the local or remote IP address - e.g., 10.0.0.5, 76.199.199.199.

Hint: You can also open the landing page of your server instance at port 5080 (i.e., http://localhost:5080 if launched locally) and the page will display its IP in the upper-right corner.

Notes

  1. For the Subscriber examples, you will need to have a live stream currently being published and named based on the Stream 1 Name field of the Settings. You can use another device to start streaming using this webapp, or you can also use a web browser to publish via Flash, http://your_red5_pro_server_ip:5080/live.
  2. You can see a list of active streams by navigating to http://your_red5_pro_server_ip:5080/live/subscribe.jsp (will need to refresh this page after you have started publishing).
  3. You can access the server IP of your Red5 Pro Server install - to be used in the Host field of the Settings - by opening http://your_red5_pro_server_ip:5080/ and finding the IP printed in the upper-right of the page.
  4. Unless you are running the server locally, WebRTC publishing requires a valid SSL certificate.
